As a kid I never paid attention to my father telling me to sit straight otherwise I'll ruin my posture. As an adult, I realise how important it was when I complain of back ache every day. Parents teach us a lot of things. While it's okay to not agree with some, when you look back, you'll realise that some of these things they taught us were absolutely right.

1. Eat your vegetables and take care of your health from an early stage.

I am surely going to teach these things to my kids despite knowing that they won't take it seriously, just like I didn't.
